"It's not about perfect. It's about effort. And when you implement that effort into your life...EVERY SINGLE DAY, that's where transformation happens. That's how Change occurs. KEEP GOING. REMEMBER WHY YOU STARTED."

It's good to pause for a minute and reflect on why you started. Seeing the old me brings enough motivation to keep the fire burning in me and continue to work and not quit. One thing I recently got reminded of is the power of Positivity. "A negative mind will never produce a positive life." I can't stress on how TRUE this is. I had the privilege to be trained by on the the greatest trainers in the industry and he defines positivity. I used to have a negative outlook on my life and not see the ability of change in my health. But @cataclysm_fitness brought the positivity in my life by his daily encouragement and consistently spoke positivity over my life, this eventually manifested in me and once that happened I was able to have the positive mindset to put in work to achieve what I wanted. We put in a lot of hard work and sweat together and lost 💯+ pounds. He helped train me for life and couldn't be more thankful. Beyond pumped to continue my journey with @cataclysm_fitness if you want change in your health and life do yourself a favor and be part of this movement. You will not be disappointed. The only way you can go is up !! Let's better ourselves. WE GOT THIS! #transformationtuesday #weightloss #change #inspiration #motivation #health #positivity #mindset #cfla #fitfam #gym

"If you aren't ready before the opportunity manifests it will be TOO LATE to get ready when the opportunity arrives. You've got to prepare in advance before the thing you're praying for shows up so when it does...YOU DON'T HAVE TO GET READY BECAUSE YOU ARE ALREADY READY!!" •

I recently read the above quote and it really encouraged me. It is a good reminder that all this work that we are putting in is preparing for what is to come and in due time we will get to our goal and be at where we want. Let's start preparing for the year of our life. If you want to be successful it's going to take everything you got. Let's do this.

Just signed up for this solid gold program above! Beyond pumped to start off 2017 the right way. I know this is going to help bring the knowledge I need and the motivation I need to successfully get through this year!
I remember struggling to commit to become healthy because every program I tried always failed me and left me with nothing. But when I saw a post of a program CFLA was offering last year I knew something about it was different from all the rest and I signed up and gave it my all and a 130 pounds later I was a healthier and happier. It helped open my eyes that this was about MY LIFE and not a diet and I got the freedom I always wanted and gained so much knowledge.
Beyond pumped to begin this new year with this program. You gotta look 2017 in the face and ask yourself: HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT. Who's with me? Let's all sign up and do this together, I guarantee you will not be disappointed and will get so much out of this. Invest in yourself this year make this year about you and get the change you always wanted. Sign up at

Decide today who you will become, what you will give, and how you will live.
Last year was a year that I learned a lot from. It might not have been the best year but I couldn't be more thankful for it because everything I went through I learned so much from and am going to take what I learned from 2016 into 2017 and start over! I am going to raise my standard and demand a better me. "Evaluate where you are, look at it, assess yourself. Assess yourself and look at your situation what brought you there? What has brought you to this point? what did you learn from it? Are you learning from it or are you doing it over and over again?Somebody's said that insanity is doing the same thing in the same way expecting a different outcome. Don't let this year be like last and if last year was great still don't let it be that way raise the standard if your life is perfect and extraordinary you know your not going to be happy unless you keep making it better, that's what makes us feel alive, it's not what we get that makes us happy, it's who we become and what we're able to give because we have become more." 2017 I'm coming for you!! #newyear #newme #2017

The distance between who I am and who I want to be is separated only by my actions, not words. Before success ever happens you have to believe it first. PREPARE your mind then bring action and GO after it. Don't give up just because something is hard. Pushing through challenges is what makes you grow. When I made the decision to bring change in my life to become healthy I had to totally turn my thought process and my way of thinking completely around. The power of your mind is crazy. When you can control that you can do anything. This past half year I got caught up in the comfort of being comfortable. I continued to do my routine, but haven't seen the results I wanted and thought this is was where I am supposed to be. I accepted that and let that control me. Today I woke up and realized I am not going to accept being comfortable any longer. I am going to push and fight for what I want and go the extra mile each and every day. Getting stuck in a plateau can be utterly discouraging but you CANT let that define you and you CANT accept that. Today marks a turning point for me, I am going to FIGHT and I am going to CONQUER. Let's finish this year stronger then ever. WE GOT THIS!

There will be days where your not motivated.

But motivation comes after you show up.

Don't start with motivation -
Been a challenging few months for me, not where I want to be and I was letting that hold me back. I can't let that nonsense discourage and stop me. If anything I got to work harder and keep on going. I got to be CONSISTENT And the results will come. Time to take it up a notch. I have a goal to hit by the end of the year and I WILL hit it. I encourage everyone who is wanting something to go get it work for it, we got this!! Let's go and conquer the impossible.
